Hello BD community,
I just got scammed by this guy and wanted to warn our community about him. He contacted me by my "Want to Buy:" listing for Accurate lefty reels. He texted me pictures of 4 Accurate reels and wanted me to send him money through Zelle. I asked for his BD handle and he said "Composite". I checked out his profile on BD and he registered in 2015 with 360 messages. Based on his solid BD profile, I sent him the money (see photos). There is a photo of him. It's been over a week and he hasn't sent the tracking number as he said. I have texted him many times until he finally admitted that he is sorry to take my money. His phone number is 929-483-0928 and said he's in NY. The email linked to his Zelle account is [email protected]. That account belongs to a name of Cheryl Lyn Mulato (probably his wife). I've purchased and sold items on BD before and this is the first time I got scammed. Seems like more scammers are using this community. Please learn from my lesson and be extra CAREFUL when sending money nowadays.

Update: he was caught trying to sell more items on BD. See the reply from Reef below. Using the same Zelle account and BD name but different phone number 662-912-6317. Watch out guys!!!

1) Never send money by any method where you can't get it back. Zelle, Paypal friends/family, Western Union, prepaid cards, or bitcoin.

2) Never send money to anyone who looks like a meth or crack addict. (That eliminates half the members in BD Outdoors).

3) Never send money to anyone who looks like an alcoholic (That eliminates the other half of the members in BD Outdoors).

    1) Never send money by any method where you can't get it back… Paypal friends/family…
    Yes, however, PayPal does have protected transaction methods for both seller and buyer

    seller needs to send buyer an invoice off paypal-com with terms and conditions that actually form a contract is one way with particular attention to delivery terms and accurate description…

    seller has to be able to prove the goods were delivered - and buyer needs an accurate description to prove what they are buying

    Not if you use Paypal friends and family to send money. Its a one way ticket with no way back.

    Unless, I have to, I will use normal PayPal NOT F&F and will add a little more to the final price to cover the cost of protection.

    Also, I rather use face to face.

    Not that it matters now, but did you DM him here to confirm that was him? His user name?

    anyways, sucks. Wouldn’t hurt to try that FB route as mentioned above

    I guess it really comes down to who you are dealing with....I've been here since 2004 and have sold a ton of stuff and have always stood by anything I sell and if it's not right then I refund the complete total to the buyer......my name and integrity mean a hell of a lot more to me than any rod or reel and anybody that knows me also knows that.....I'll be selling a ton of stuff shortly and please feel free to vet me and just know you're dealing with somebody that doesn't fall into either half as described above
    Y'all have a great day :)

    Same guy is trying to sell me a offshore bait tank. He says he will ship from Mississippi once I Zelle him the money. 662-912-6317 is the number he is using now. Same BD user name and Zelle account. Got that gut feeling he was a cocksucker trying to scam money
